, if it indeed does go through. number one it cuts to the medicare advantage reimbursement and that is likely to be included in a final bill. what does it mean for companies and individuals? >> right. so to fund this whole proposal there has to be cuts somewhere or revenue generation. and one of the big places for the cut is the medicare advantage and what this means is it primarily is going to impact the senior folks who are out there in these medicare advantage programs which are different from your typical medicare program in there are much more choices, more options, because of those more choices and options that causes higher cost. so win way to reduce a tremendous amount of cost is to remove this program. now, that will impact the seniors out there who like those choices, they will have less choices but it is one of the sacrifices that the lawmakers have decided as far as how to pay for reform. >> and is this a big negative for insurance companies too? >> it is not -- it depends. each insurance company has a different amount of exposure to medicare advantage. we talked about wellpoint a
insurance plans pay under part d of medicare for prescription drugs. they are taking advantage of their purchasing power. and we're relying on private insurers committee are' competition in part d of medicare, it isn't as effective as the v.a. which does take advantage of its market power. let me just talk for a moment on a private insurance. we rely on private insurance here. it's for-profit insurance. i think it leads to much higher health care costs. private insurers, obviously by definition, they have to make a profit. in addition to that they engage in marketing, they also engage in what we call medical understood writing, they have to hire a lot of actuaries to make sure that they're not taking on people who are too expensive. these are all very costly things. so that raises the price of private insurance. in addition, as i said, they don't have as much bargaining power so they also can't keep their prices low by taking advantage of the consolidated power that i'm talking about. so you might ask, why do we allow private insurance to have quasi-monopoly and the answer is t

. in 2002 under the employee initiative the centers for medicare and medicaid services began publicly reporting quality information on nursing-home nationally on their web site. this was followed a year later by a similar effort in the home health arena. simultaneously there have been demonstration products by medicare in home house and skilled nursing facilities. state medicaid agencies have begun experimenting with a for performance in the nursing-home setting. the question is how these current market-based reforms address these broad goals of long-term care. in theory these reforms are perfectly compatible with these goals of improving quality of life and reducing fragmentation and increasing community-based services but there are several key attributes of these market-based reforms that may limit their effectiveness in this regard. the first limitation is current market-based reforms tend to rely on narrowly defined clinical quality measures. this tends to reinforce a medical model of care which pays more attention to clinical quality than issues related to quality of life and a c

"democrats are able to omit time consuming steps in the senate and prevent republicans from trying to delay the final negotiations. under senate rules, three separate votes are required before negotiators for the two houses may hold a formal meeting. while the three normally are agreed to within seconds, each may be filibustered, and democrats would then have to produce 60 votes to cut off debate. additionally, republicans would have the right to demand votes on nine -- non-bindingñr proposs wants negotiators for the two houses were appointed. that could, in turn, required democrats to vote on political controversies such as wiping out the legislation proposed cuts in medicare, which easily be turned into attack ads in next fall's campaign." bill, good morning. caller: good morning,

. social security, food stamps, medicare are examples of the more federal, uniform policies. if a program or policy is being developed at a time when there is a major goal to reduce the role of the federal government or the size of the federal government, which was true in the 1980's, the goal is to devolve decision making from the federal level down to lower levels. then you end up getting policies like the current welfare system, temporary assistance for needy families, and work-force development. if, on the other hand, a program is developed at the national level at a time when there is distrust of state and local governments, but more trust of the federal government, perhaps like in the '60s, during the war on poverty, then you may see more federal control of programs, but devolution down to the local level -- community action agencies, like public centers. depending on when a public -- when a policy or program is enacted, the philosophies, the values better, at that particular time heavily influenced the structure of the programs. nevertheless, the things that affect people the most
talking but deliver. >> thirteen times against voting for the minimum wage. 13 times to cut medicare. he has voted for trade deals like after that send jobs overseas. he is the leader in the senate for privatizing social security. 98% voting record with george bush. so what's behind all the talk? i record that hurts pennsylvania. >> i'm bob casey and i approve this message. >> one of the argus were concerned about that he could make is that he was given for pennsylvania, that he had the seniority to bring a lot of projects on, a lot of jobs on. it took him a while to get out of that message but at the time we started running this, he had finally started talking about that. that's why he talks about delivering for pennsylvania. we wanted to say, no, here is what he is doing to regular pennsylvanians. so it's the set up with a positive and a follow through with the negative. and also reacting, anticipating where he was likely to go with the one message that was going to do him the most good. and what was going to be a tough year for him. we do a lot of work for the esc see, the democratic
war. this is not going on for a point* security going bankrupt and had to be saved. medicare went bankrupt in the late 90's and general revenue was added. we are in it because of the recession but it is more intense than ever. my feeling is we go through a variety of options the for don't get day strategy for the future along the lines of -- if we don't get a commission that has teeth and we will default and that will be a long tough fight. >> just one thing before we move on. i appreciate your historical perspective and appreciate when they wrote ran against each other that was worse than partisan stance provide take a shorter view of history which is what i know. it to me it looks like a straight downhill slide in the ability of people of good will from both parties to get together and address the problems of common public interest as opposed to constantly looking for an edge in the next election. do disagree? >> i do. that is why i am here. [laughter] the key factor is the south have two-thirds of their leadership positions and you have long term democratic control. larry is th
